Hypothetical scenario: You can never listen to the GD, Jerry, or any GD music ever again. You are allowed to chose only one artist/band to listen to. Who do you take?

I think I'll take Dylan. So tough to say. It would have to be someone with a vast catalogue like Jerry had.

I would definitely go with Bus To Neptune. So many great tunes that cover the entire musical spectrum.

The problem is that you are basically choosing the music that will eventually torture you to death through repetition. For me this has to be a virtuoso -- a master musician and transcendent figure, and frankly, this rules out most rock musicians for me. I'd probably choose someone like Miles, Trane, or John Lennon, though I'd take a look at Jeff Tweedy and even Robert Pollard.

"The problem is that you are basically choosing the music that will eventually torture you to death through repetition."

Well, in that case you could choose 1910 Fruitgum Co. or The New Vaudeville Band. Would that be torturous enough for you?

"Well, at any rate, another thread worth bookmarking, since it's full of musicians I've never heard of whom some people say they could listen to for the rest of their lives?! "

I agree, and will surely investigate those artists I am not familiar with.

Pollard is a little bit tongue in cheek, but I just love Guided By Voices and I know that I can listen to them for hours on end if necessary.

If I could only listen to one artist/band ever I would probably stop listening to recorded music altogether and make a better attempt to produce my own. With the amount of time I spend listening to music I would probably go insane if I could only listen to one band/artist....no, check that...I would go insane.

Sounds like a question you would ask on a second or third date.

Warren Haynes, he covers so much material from the dead to funk, to joe cocker, and the faces, he is with the abb, mule, his own band, phil. I could get a decent fix on a lot of music with warren but that is a hard question but a fun one

Dylan would be my choice too. He's the only performer I never tire of hearing in the studio. John Coltrane is a close second place. The Allman Bros. deserve consideration.

Gotta go with Zappa/Mothers.
Variety, humor, great musicianship, impressive cast of musicians over the years, loads of releases over 35+ years and loads more still in the vaults, waiting to be released.

And to be quite candid, I can't either - although I enjoyed those guys playing with Kevn on his stuff. BTW, a nice Kevn show on archive today with Rick Richards (Ga. Satellites) playing geetar...

Steve Wynn - wonder how often he gets confused with the casino magnate?

damn, i'll have to check that out ... didn't the Satellites morph into the Yayhoos?

"Steve Wynn - wonder how often he gets confused with the casino magnate?"

judging by my many many goofle searches for SW related info/music, quite a lot ... i think once i actually came across a pic of both SWs in the same photo ... they probably chuckled about the name confusion, with the vegas SW picking up the drinks tab...

Dan Baird and the bassist (forget his name) are in the Yahoos. Not sure what Rick is doing these days, but I've seen him tons of times 'back in the day' with Pete Buck and Kevn. Rick was actually in Izzy Stradlin's band (Ju Ju Hounds?) that was really damn good (kind of like an even raunchier Xpensive Winos).

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: "Tummy" - A Lemming Rock Opera

Long long ago, far far away, or the cliffs of Dover resided a small little colony of three lemmings. They were all male lemmings. Eventually, as time passed on, three additional male lemmings joined this small little colony. They would hang out together every day, hunt fish in the ocean, listen to the sounds of the wind and rain, lie on their backs and sun bathe on the sunny days and when the mood arose they would rub each others tummy’s and say, tummy can you hear me? tummy can you see me? in lemming speak of course.

This was a very peculiar behavior, but since there were no female lemmings to keep them company they bonded the best that male lemmings could. The alpha lemming was named “Blind Melon Chitlin”, he was deaf, dumb and blind. Anything that blind melon did, the other five lemmings imitated, for after all, they were just lemmings, doing the best that lemmings could do, following the leader of their little pack.

One day, for no obvious reason, blind melon walked towards the edge of the cliffs and just kept walking until he plunged to his demise. Without even batting an eye the five other lemmings followed his lead and also plunged down, splattering onto the rocks beneath, all dead lemmings.


So by now you’re probably asking yourself “what is the moral of this fable?”

A rock opera is a work of rock music that presents a storyline told over multiple parts, songs or sections in the manner of opera. A rock opera differs from a conventional rock album, which usually includes songs that are not unified by a common theme or narrative. Jesus Christ Superstar is one of the ten greatest rock operas. In Russia, the performance of “Jesus Christ Superstar” at the Philharmonic in Rostov-on-Don has been halted while prosecutors determine whether or not there is any validity to the complaint launched by 18 locals alleging that the musical is a profanation. The Russian Orthodox Church denies any involvement in the complaints.
